ZEISS: Significant Growth in Revenue and Earnings


OBERKOCHEN, Germany, May 11, 2017 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/ --

The ZEISS Group had a very successful end to the first six months of fiscal

year 2016/17 (ended 31 March) and saw its revenue rise by 10 percent to EUR

2.550 billion (1st half of 2015/16: EUR 2.322 billion). At EUR 384 million, the

earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) were significantly higher than the

previous year (EUR 280 million). The EBIT margin has increased to 15 percent.

ZEISS generates around 90 percent of its business outside Germany. This

positive business trend is borne in particular by the dynamically developing

economies in the Asia/Pacific region.

"ZEISS is benefiting once again from its solid and future-oriented portfolio,

and recorded growth across all segments over the same period of the prior

year," says Prof. Dr. Michael Kaschke, President and CEO of Carl Zeiss AG. "Our

growth substantiates our aspiration to be a technological leader in optics and


ZEISS increased its investments in research and development by around 20

percent: in the first half of fiscal year 2016/17, this amounted to EUR 247

million (1st half of 2015/16: EUR 207 million).

Global growth forecasts have improved slightly. "As things stand today, we will

be able to forge ahead with our growth trajectory in the second half of the

year," predicts Kaschke.
